so i got an email from new democratic majority yesterday saying that there was going to be a meeting at a bar called "the tank" tonight.

i completely planned to go to this. the only thing we have left to stop bush is to organize.

well i got a message today saying that they had there date wrong and that the meeting was last night.

the good part of the message was this:

"However, in truth the venue could not have accommodated many more people than those in attendance, so perhaps it's a blessing in disguise."

i'm glad to see that bush's win has motivated lots of people to do something.

the bad part was this:

"We encouraged all those there to blog about their election experiences, hopes and fears on the blog section of our website, www.newdemmajority.org"

i'm sick of sitting around on my computer. i want to get out there and do something. i want to meet people face to face.

so i actually went to the tank tonight to see if there would be anybody who would show up, but well, it was this tiny arty place that was about to have a jazz band start plying.

anyway, i feel really let down by the whole affair.

i suggest everybody reading this get involved with a local democratic organization.

can anybody suggest another democratic organization in new york?

haven't been here in a while. i've been really depressed lately because of the bush win.

there are people in america saying that this win is going to get rid of michael moore and the gays.

does no one else see where this is going?

ugh, i feel so sick. i need to think about something else for a while.

My life has been very good lately.

I saw a cab burning on West 32nd Street earlier this evening. I hope it was nothing serious.

I got a digital camera for free in the mail today. I can't seem to get it to work. My down stairs neighbor is playing his radio MUCH too loud.

There is too much pointless drama in my life today.

My dreams aren't anywhere near as interesting as they used to be. This makes me sad. It's like some part of me that was unique died.

I remember a dream I had as a child living in Mississippi. It was probably a year or two after my parents and grandparents cut down a lot of the trees on our property. My grandfather had it in his head that he was going to urbanize the swamp we were living in and make it like New Orleans. As an adult I can't blame him for this as misguided as it was, but as a child I was terribly upset because I used to play in the woods that were cut down and sold for lumber. Tall grass and weeds grew up in their place. This was a very warm subtropical humid climate so 6 feet tall underbrush grew up in a matter of a year over several acres of property.

In this dream I had, I was playing under my parents house. Our house was one of those Gulf South stilted houses where it was raised a story off the ground on wooden pilings for floods. I looked up and surrounding me in the acres of underbrush were lots of people. Maybe these people were Native Americans, or the trees we cut down, or the ghosts of dead slaves, or the local country folk of the area who we didn't exactly fit in with, maybe they were all of these and more. Their faces were blank. I don't know if they were simply expressionless or if they had no faces. They were all staring at me. Then they all suddenly rushed at me in unison. I don't mean they ran or walked swiftly at me. They all suddenly moved at me. I ran out from under the house and up the deck stairs. I remember thinking that if only I could make it inside I would be safe. But deep down I knew this wasn't true.

7:40 pm - the devil was a lawyer
So I refinanced my student loans today. I'll be paying a pretty hefty chunk of my income for 25 years because I got a Master's degree. Student loans are like a penalty tax for being smart but born poor. They also get you hooked when you are too young to know any better. Sucks.

Woo Friday night. I'm at home alone drinking.

Going to that bar-b-que in Sleepy Hollow yesterday made me realize that I really did love living there. I didn't notice at the time because it was so expensive and such a struggle to survive. Although Westchester county is so... vanilla and uptight... it truly is beautiful. The rolling hills the trees...

The thing I miss the most about Sleepy Hollow, is the Sleepy Hollow cemetery (Washington Irving is buried there). A lot of the individuals buried there don't deserve the tombs they have, but they are still something to see. For example a tomb with a statue of a woman throwing herself over it and weeping. Simply being wealthy enough to afford such a tomb is not a good enough reason to have such a tomb. You have to earn such a tomb. There are all sorts of crazy tombs in New Orleans, but all the interned have a story that earned it. But, alas, I am being judgmental. Perhaps I simply do not know the stories behind the tombs of Sleepy Hollow.

So I got a call from my friend Jad last night. It seems he's completely fed up with Baton Rouge and is going to move up here this summer. I hung out with Jad a lot in my early college years (what should really have been my mid college years). After that, I saw him around LSU a lot as an undergrad and grad student, but we didn't hang out all the time like we used to. Fucking Right, I am looking looking forward to seeing him again.

So I get on the subway this morning to go to work. During the morning and afternoon rush hours, seats are near impossible to find, which was the reason I was surprised to see several empty seats. Until the smell hit me, just as the doors shut. This was an express train so I was going to be stuck on it for a while. I walked down the car and discovered that the stench was coming from a single homeless person passed out on one of the seats. Now he didn't smell like he'd shit his pants, this was pure b.o. and it was incredibly pungent. It filled up the entire car. I had no idea that a human being could smell this bad.

Now, I'm not one of those people who hates homeless people. I understand that most homeless people aren't responsible for their situation. I mean, I don't give money to panhandlers, because here in New York they will follow you if you give them money, and I'm also a greedy fuck. But this was unbelievable. As we pulled into the next stop, half the people in the car were running out to get in another car.

To reach this point of deterioration of personal hygiene, I would venture to say that I am certain this guy was mentally ill. This got me to thinking, sometime in the 60s we stopped forcibly locking up the non-violent mentally ill, which is a good thing. But it seems like there are a lack of services for people who can't take care of themselves. The reason the services don't exist is because people ask, "Why should I have to pay for them?" A possible answer could be so that you don't have to smell them on the train in the morning (it was way to early to be dealing with something like that). But I digress, I'm a greedy fuck and I don't want to be parted in with my money either.

current mood: nauseated
